August already?

It's an understatement that I haven't been keeping up here. My last post has been haunting me all year as it ages, and as I haven't been keeping up with my reading at the level I had been in other years. I've instead been writing more and my days have been extremely full at work. This summer was full of milestones and reflections that have little to do with the topics normally discussed here!

My latest goals that do involve this site are to keep better track of what I read. Not merely to read something but to summarize and reflect upon it for myself as I do read--much like professors have asked me to do for classes while I was in school the past few years. When I started my reading log, that was a goal, but I often become too shy to post these notes online. Whether they make it here or not, I'm determined to get into some good practices and to make this space a bit more of a commonplace book than it has been lately.

I also think this site needs an aesthetic overhaul, but the many tweaks that I have applied to customize its theme leaves me reticent to tackle any kind of transfer or upgrade. So for now I'll try to struggle onward, or watch this latest re-commitment fail to take hold and move on to other things!
